1917 trailer is out. 1917, denoting the year it is set in, is also quite different. For one, it is set during World War II and the weaponry reflects that. George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman play main roles while Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Claire Duburcq, with Colin Firth, and Benedict Cumberbatch make up the supporting cast.
The official synopsis reads, “At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (Captain Fantastic’s George MacKay) and Blake (Game of Thrones’ Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s own brother among them.”
1917 releases on December 25, 2019 in the US.
